They will celebrate the cream of the area’s sporting achievement and service, ranging from sporty schools to championship-winning teams.

Volunteers who dedicate their time to improve participation and provision, allowing sport at a grassroots level the chance to shine, will also be rewarded for their efforts.

There are 10 categories to enter - the full list is shown below.
